The voice of our Club Mareva members from all over the World



Marko Bilic

We are delighted and proud to welcome you to our new website, which will provide all of our web visitors with a better understanding of what we at Club Mareva are all about, as well as all of our members with all of the information and services that they can enjoy as Club Mareva members from all over the world.

When you browse the Cigar Club Mareva website, you will notice the diversity of our activities and how much of a footprint we are willing and wishing to leave in this world in general, but also in the lives of our members. 13 years of Mareva's existence and 13 years of Cigar Smoking World Championship that came from our hands have given us a huge amount of experience that is made up of ups and downs, mistakes and victories, but all with one intention and only by one motivation - passion for cigars and passion for people, and the richness of time spent with both of them.

Our website has several sections, and the last one - Mareva News - will be the voice of our members, our Club's newspaper, where we will share all of our activities, services, ideas, tastings, pairings, and thoughts of our Club Mareva members and friends. Yes, this will be an active website updated at least once per week. This new website means for us to share Mareva's world with the rest of the world, not just cigar world but with the world of the positive people. We invite you to join us on this journey because our motto is - Because life is a moment -so let's enjoy it together.
